    Parkstone Wayfarers are organising another weekend of race training over the early May Bank Holiday in 2007. The weekend is aimed at mid-fleet downwards, or those who might not have raced their Wayfarer before. Our previous training weekend proved to be enjoyable as well as instructive and we hope to build on that experience. We hope this might be of interest to Wayfarers from neighbouring clubs as well as our own, or those from further afield. The Parkstone team will lead the training, with help from other Wayfarer sailors.

    We enjoy superb facilities at Parkstone with a magnificent sailing area in Poole Harbour and welcome the opportunity to invite other UKWA members to this event. More details in the next issue of “Wayfarer News”, on the Parkstone Wayfarer web site, http://www.parkstonewayfarers.org.uk, or call Parkstone’s newly elected Class Captain, Lynaire Rea, on 01202 731879, e-mail classcaptain@parkstonewayfarers.org.uk. In the meantime mark May 5-7th in your 2007 diary!

    Twenty one Wayfarers, including eleven visitors, assembled at Parkstone Yacht Club on Saturday, May 5th, for the start of our second Race Training weekend. Boats rigged and tuned in the morning, fun races in the afternoon, in gentle breezes and sunshine. Classroom talks on Sunday morning followed by some exciting races in F4/5 breezes in the afternoon. The weather let us down on Monday, but beating/reaching/running talks in the morning, then Expeditious on its side in the cruiser shed after lunch to show how rig controls etc really work.
    A great weekend was enjoyed by all, and we look forward to seeing some of the visitors back at the club for Poole Week.
